Food recalls

There's a recall on several sandwiches sold at Circle K/Couche Tard, for listeria. They're only *known* to have been sold in Quebec (and frankly, I suspect gas-station sandwiches aren't especially a weakness for most of us) but may have been distributed elsewhere.

Western folks, be aware that Taynton brand pickle-flavored vodka (a phrase I never thought I'd type, but here we are) has been recalled for excessive levels of copper. It's sold in BC and Alberta, and online.

Finocchiona brand salami, the Sweet Fennel version, is being recalled for possible salmonella contamination. It was sold from BC to Ontario.

Indeed. I did a double take also.

Four surface-ripened cheeses from Quebec are being recalled for listeria. They were sold in both Quebec and Ontario, and may have made their way to other provinces. Brands are La Vache à Maillotte and Le Fromage au Village.

Not a food recall as such, but if anyone uses Fiber Plus powder as a supplement/laxative, please be aware that a batch has been recalled for cronobacter contamination.

It's worth pointing out that these notices (and a big thank-you to members who post them) are kind of deceptive, in that if one reads a headline like "Daniele International LLC Recalls Ready-to-Eat Sausage Products Due to Possible Listeria Contamination," one might think that they should avoid sausages with the name "Danielle" on them.

 

In fact, Danielle isn't a brand you are likely to come across in the deli. However, depending on where you live, you might be familiar with brand names like Frederik, Boar's Head, Colameco and Del Duca. Danielle makes sausages for all those companies, and those are the names you need to look for. But unless you've read the notice, you wouldn't know that, or which of those brand's products might be subject to recall. 

 

Please don't misunderstand me -- I'm not criticizing those of you who post recall notices. Far from it. Rather, I want you to do your due diligence, and follow the links they're giving you. At worst, you'll come to find that something in you refrigerator is lying in wait to poison you. At best, you'll learn that Bourbon BBQ Vienna Sausages exist (scroll down a bit). Because this is a great country.

Not being from "down under" it would be unlikely that I would run across any of those brands that you mention, but a very well-known brand "Armour" is much more prevalent and looking at the list is the most common thread.
